Hello, my name is Willa Thomas and I am hosting a charity event called Swim 2 Breathe. I am a 13 year old asthmatic swimmer and I recently had a life changing stay in the hospital. Seeing all the babies and toddlers that did not get released as soon as I did made me want to help. I’m hoping to raise $10,000 by hosting a 48 hour swim relay where the swimmers ask for sponsorships for each 200 yards they swim. If the event lasts for 48 hours and if each person swims 200 yards we will need about 960 people to swim. In addition to the money we will raise, the event will also break the Guinness World Record for the longest consecutive swimming relay in a pool!
Goal $ 10,000.00
0.56% towards our goal
$ 56.00 raised
All the proceeds will provide beds, warm meals, showers, and even a place for the siblings and sometimes even the patients to go to school. I am hosting this event for the Ronald McDonald House because studies show that children heal faster when their family is near, and when the Ronald McDonald house is right across the street from the hospital it is easy for families to get to their child's bedside. Ronald McDonald House Charities also help families that are struggling financially by giving them a place to stay and hot meals regardless of their ability to pay. Thanks for your time, Willa
